The College at Southeastern is a four-year, fully accredited Christian college located minutes from Raleigh in Wake Forest. The college was founded in 1994 and is closely linked to Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (SEBTS), which opened in 1950.
The mission of The College at Southeastern is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ by equipping students to serve the church and fulfill the Great Commission. We want students to discover their mission and make Christ known whether they serve in ministry as pastors and missionaries or in other careers as teachers, business professionals, lawyers and more.
Under President Daniel Akin’s visionary leadership, the college has grown and thrived as it equips students to go and make disciples of all nations for Jesus Christ, locally and internationally.
The College at Southeastern values five core competencies: spiritual formation, biblical exposition, theological integration, Christian leadership and ministry preparation.
Competitive tuition rates provide students an excellent price for a private, liberal arts, Christian education, regardless of their academic pursuits.
Students have the option of several engaging degree programs including a Bachelor of Arts in:
- Biblical Studies
- Global Studies
- History (Pre-Law)
- Interdisciplinary Studies
- Justice and Social Ethics
- Pastoral Ministry
- Social Studies
- Student Ministry
- Worship Ministry
Degree minors include areas such as apologetics, business, ESL, missions, organizational leadership, preaching, psychology, student ministry and writing, rhetoric and communication.
This well-rounded curriculum enables students to articulate and defend the Christian faith wherever God may place them. Diverse degree programs allow students to prepare to for a wide variety of contexts.
Students interested in pastoral ministry also have the opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Divinity in five years through the Hunt Scholars Program. This allows undergraduate students to enroll concurrently in Southeastern Seminary once they have completed 60 hours of baccalaureate credit through The College at Southeastern, enabling them to finish their ministry preparation sooner and begin ministering in the local church.
Courses and select degree programs are offered in multiple formats, including online, hybrid and on-campus to meet the needs of the 21st century student.
Students can get involved in many aspects of campus life at The College at Southeastern. One primary way is through the House System, the undergraduate residence life program that began in Fall 2016. Students live, learn, study and serve together with one of four houses named after great heroes of the faith—Adoniram and Ann Judson, George Liele, Francis Schaeffer and Andrew Fuller. Through the House System, students build community, receive mentorship and build lasting friendships.
